David was a lovely gentleman who was prompt and efficient in unclogging the drains. I was informed when he was on his way and sent a link to track his location so I knew exactly when he would arrive. He was polite and considerate and explained the issue to me once he had fixed it. Definitely will be using this service again! Very reliable!

I used Sharpline for an old toilet with bad pipes and called as a matter of urgency. Chad from Sharpline was very punctual, great communication, so friendly and incredibly professional. He gave us advice and a heads up to what would need to happen to fix the issue long term (which at the time we weren't in a position to do). I highly recommend using Chad as a plumber.

A blocked stormwater drain is the drain that drains the water from the street – generally rain water. The rain barrels and drains on the roof and side of your house also empty to the same draining system. Stormwater drains run separate from sewage drains. 

Blocked stormwater drains are identified through puddles of water above the drain from not draining, gurgling or odours. The council is generally responsible for taking care of the drains on the street. However, you are be responsible for the storm water drains and systems within your house.

Causes Of A Blocked Stormwater Drain

A blocked stormwater drain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Debris: Leaves, twigs, and other debris can accumulate.
  • Trash: Litter and other forms of trash can also block stormwater drains.
  • Grease and oil: These substances can build up in the drain and form a blockage.
  • Soil erosion: If the soil around the drain is eroding, it can cause debris and sediment to clog the drain.
  • Tree roots: Tree roots can grow into the drain and cause blockages.
  • Construction: Construction activities can also cause debris and sediment to clog stormwater drains.
  • Improperly connected pipes: pipes that are not properly connected to the stormwater drainage system can cause blockages.
  • Overflowing gutters: When gutters become clogged, water can overflow and cause blockages in the stormwater drain.

How To Prevent A Blocked Stormwater Drain

1. Use A Plumber To Install Your Drains

A plumber can ensure that your drains are properly installed and connected to the stormwater drainage system. This can help prevent blockages caused by improperly connected pipes.

2. Yearly Drain Cleaning

Regularly cleaning your drains can help prevent blockages caused by debris, trash, and grease. A plumber can perform a yearly cleaning to ensure that your drains are functioning properly.

3. Be Careful Where You Plant Trees In Your Property

Planting trees too close to your drains can cause blockages as roots can grow into the drain. Be mindful of the location of your drains when planting trees and consider the potential for tree roots to cause blockages.

4. Install Gutter Guards And Grates

Gutter guards and grates can prevent debris, leaves, and other materials from clogging your gutters and overflowing into your stormwater drains. This can help prevent blockages caused by overflowing gutters.

Are your blocked stormwater drains blocked?

Do not attempt to unblock a storm water drain yourself. This can be dangerous and may cause further damage to the drain. Instead, call a professional plumber who has the necessary equipment and expertise to safely and effectively unblock your stormwater drain.
